Everyone going into shops or meeting up outside should wear masks

Why the contribution is important

I work in a supermarket there have been far too many people out and about without masks coughing on people without realising at least it will contain spittle from getting on peopke if masks are enforced but it needs to be strict yes not always possible on the streets but certainly in shops anyone without a mask doesn't get it we need to contain this, we have masks in store but no one using them it's time to get stricter

    I know that the benefits of face coverings/masks are disputed, but they are increasingly being used by countries coming out of lockdown in Europe, and their use is already prevalent in Asia. I believe that, to be effective in mitigating the spread of droplets from sneezes, coughs and breaths, their use in a population needs to be more or less universal. So, I would urge that the current recommendation to consider wearing a face covering in potentially crowded or busy situations like shops and public transport should be toughened up to mandatory status, with the customary range of enforcement provisions. Why the contribution is important I think that the wearing of face coverings/masks in appropriate situations is important because: 1. It is beneficial in preventing the spread of the virus. 2. It will publicly and visibly reinforce community commitment to a disciplined approach to emerging from the crisis. 3. It will be acknowledged by the our neighbours in Europe and the wider World as a reassurance that we are taking the threats of a "second wave" seriously and responsibly.
